Hands Like Houses To Replace The Ghost Inside On ‘Big Ass Tour’

Hands Like Houses have been announced as the official replacements for The Ghost Inside on The Amity Affliction‘s Big Ass Tour.

The Canberra five-piece will join A Day To Remember and Motionless In White on the monster metalcore bill for a 6-date Aussie arena adventure, after The Ghost Inside were forced to withdraw following a horrific bus crash that left them nursing numerous injuries.

The band issued an honest statement to their fans following the tour cancellation, saying:

“Over the last week most of these procedures have been completed very successfully, but there are still a couple more to go, and most of the guys are still in the hospital. It is yet another blessing that we are in a place with so many remarkable doctors and surgeons to make this possible.

“It is going to be a long road for us to quite literally be back on our feet. We have many months of recovery, rehabilitation, and physical therapy ahead. For some of us, simply learning to walk again will be a monumental undertaking. For now, we must put all shows on hold and focus only on our health.”

Hands Like Houses will no doubt be a cracking replacement for their American brothers. The boys are fresh off a 32-date world tour and have a stomping new single all over the airwaves called New Romantics.

“It’s a bittersweet situation that we announce we have been added to ‘The Big Ass Tour’,” the band said today. “What happened to The Ghost Inside definitely hit home for us as a band and the music community in general. We are grateful for the opportunity, wish them a swift recovery and hope they can get back on the road soon.”

Check it out their new single below, along with all the details for The Amity Affliction’s Big Ass Tour, which kicks off next week.
